“The Physiology of Addiction” will be presented by Carl Christensen, MD, PhD, FACOG, CRMO, ABAM. This program will explore the differences in neurochemistry between the addicted brain and the normal brain, the progression of physiological changes that
occur in chemically dependent individuals, the mechanisms of physiologic tolerance and withdrawal, and the effects of treatment on the addicted brain. This program is part of the Dawn Farm Education Series. The Dawn Farm Education Series is a FREE, annual
workshop series developed to provide accurate, helpful, hopeful, practical, current information about chemical dependency, recovery, family and related issues; and to dispel the myths, misinformation, secrecy, shame and stigma that prevent chemically dependent
individuals and their families from getting help and getting well.
